“Re-bike” auction will raise money for the CCC

A program sponsored by Puma (in partnership with the Bicycle Film Festival), will raise money for the Northeast Portland-based Community Cycling Center.

Puma ponied up $200 each to several magazines for them to create “a bike depicting their magazine’s personality”. Each bike had to be made with recycled parts and they were displayed in theaters during the film festival.

Now the bikes — which range from a classic road bike singlespeed to a lowrider Schwinn Sting-ray — are up for auction on eBay and the Community Cycling Center is one of five bicycle non-profits that will receive the proceeds.

If you’d like to own one of these cool bikes and help support an even cooler non-profit, you’ve only got four days left to make your bid.

Check out all the bikes and place bids at the Puma Re-bike eBay store.

The Anthem bike is the only way a fixed gear bike can be legal in the eyes of Barnum and Balzer.

…and the XLR8R bike is the only bike with a front brake. The Anthem bike is hardly unique in having the braked wheel be the rear.

That lowrider is pretty sweet and I wish we could see more of the Theme bike. No surprise to see who\’s behind the Fader bike. That thing certainly puts a Pake with a Brooks saddle to shame…did the XLR8R folks miss the \”recycled bike parts\” memo?

Nice job, Puma. Co-opted culture done right and for a good cause!
